I've been making a push to get things really ramped up again and make some progress for summer (kids will want to go to the pool sooner than I want to think about).
One of the things that struck me was how much sodium was in the foods that I was eating more of. In particular, I've been eating quite a bit of lowfat cottage cheese and canned chicken/tuna. A cup of cottage cheese has around 900mg sodium, a big "Costco-sized" can of chicken that I can eat in one sitting has around 1000mg sodium, and even a regular sized can of tuna has around 360mg sodium. I know that fresh is better on the chicken and fish so I do try to prepare food ahead of time when I can--the cans are just extremely convenient since I can have a supply at work and whip up a quick lunch or snack.
So my question is, what's everyone's thoughts on how much sodium is too much?
Note: I don't have blood pressure issues (I'm actually on the pretty low side) and I tend to drink a ton of water.
